, president obama's talking about the law's benefits. highlighting one woman's story. >> she was one of the 3.1 million young people that this law helped cover because they could join their parents' plan. and that means that when she was diagnosed with a potentially deadly autoimmune disorder she got the care she needed. in the letter she wrote, i'm grateful because the affordable care act saved my life, saved my family from bankruptcy and gave me a future. >> this law is saving lives. how does the republican national committee counter that? quote, the white house is trying to woo young people, really? it's offensive that the democrats think that they can make things right with a social and some warm up talking points. i'll tell you what's offensive, when the republicans call the website president obama's katrina or that when obama care is terrorizing the country, or when a group backed by billionaires used a creepy uncle sam to try to scare young people not to get insurance. that was offensive, but helping millions of americans get insurance is working, and they can't handle it. joining me n

for everything. >> dan, that gets at what susan and brad were talking about the idea of can he recover? among obama voters, was it surprising that the folks still hold out hope that he can recover from this. view it as a bump in the road. the question is what gets him out? health care working? is it the improving economy or is he divorced from the economy? >> it's really an important question because as susan said, it is difficult to really bounce back. if the economy does improve, that will help. no question about that. one of the things we have seen in public opinion over the last 60 days really is that this kind of base he had beneath him which is that people thought he was an honest president or a strong leader, some of that eroded significantly and i think that's the question as to whether even if the health care law seems to be working pretty well and even if the economy comes back, whether this sense of him as a weak president or somebody who was too detached has taken hold and it does divorce him from the forces that are changing the economy. >> fred, when you look at 2014, i know tha

were very similar. president obama just came off a brutal fight with republicans over the debt ceiling. he faced reelection in the year and he was doing something to jack up his own approval and to also talk about what his presidency was about and to put some firmness behind that. he's doing that again and he's had a rough six weeks over the obama care website. he's trying to reframe this debate as they head into the midterm elections to be broader than just obama care, democrats realize that if this is about obama care in the mid-term elections it's not a good issue for them and even though we see positive things going on, they want things to be about more than that. for some, this is a signal about getting his mojo back. >> the president's economic policies improve government reliance rather than economic mobility and rather than tackling income inequality by lifting people up, he's been fixated on taxing some down. >> why do you think republicans seem so fixated on the government reliance narrative and this tax and spend. this tax and spend phrase that they of the to use over and ov

have president obama but pope francis talk about is a living wage. set the minimum wage at a level that people can survive on. you have states already emulating what a lot of these workers are talking about. seattle recently raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour. california $10 an hour. i think people are understanding because frankly those strains end up getting pushed to the states. states have to subsidize those same people. >> very quickly, wouldn't a business get a lot out of the henry ford model? unilaterally saying we're going to pay more than market price for our employees and charge you more and wouldn't that be like a huge pr for a business? >> if a business could do that, if a business could do that they would have done it already. they wouldn't need the federal government telling them to do that. it's instrubtive the examples we're hearing, fast food strikes, airport in seatle, these are union-backed campaigns to try to create a discussion, try to demonize large companies but at the end of the day all they're doing is restricting opportunities for sort of the people

. >> not too early to be talking about healthcare.gov. this is what the obama website looks like today. this is brand-new. see plans before i apply. what's different is -- they were afraid to put this out in the beginning because they thought sticker shock would scare people away but now you can click on that. what's interesting is the sticker shock is going to overwhelm people. i was reading today if you are 35 years old, a couple living in el paso, texas, you get the blue cross-blue shield plan, the premium is less than $300 a month but the deductible is $12,000 a year. this is not what we were promised. >> not at all. also on the website, i saw was they added a q. and a. area where it says can i keep my own doctor because everyone has been asking. it answers depending on the plan you choose and the marketplace, you may -- not you can -- you may be able to keep your own doctor, certainly raising eyebrows and suspicions when it comes to remembering and recalling the president's promise that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctors. chris wallace, ezekiel emanual behind it al

, is this the evil empire speech reapplied to obama care? i mean, i've never heard the word evil used to many times. i love the way sarah palin is unbelievably delicious at this. she talks about and those death panels are in there. i love the way she says the death panels are in there somewhere. like they're creeping around inside. >> i mean, sam very rightly and logically said these people should stop because the president said, repeated today, and reminded them that he's going to be in office. he can veto anything. so they ought to calm down. but the fact is when you watch a few of those clips and when you talk to people in the movement and when you cover some of these groups and so forth, you realize that there's something else going on here. it isn't just a piece of legislation with these people. it's a kind of crusade against some deeply evil force. it almost harkens back to the days when people were worried about communist infiltration and there were people from abroad that were going to control every aspect of your life. in the clips they used words like killing and death. and they used the

snowy white house. president obama spoke yesterday where he talked about essentially the fact that he doesn't believe this is a done deal. he said, look, the chances of this deal with iran actually being ultimately successful are about 50/50. he also underscored the point that, look, this is a test. according to this administration, it's a six-month deal aimed at trying to see how serious iran really is about scaling back its nuclear programs. the president highlighting the fact that inspectors are in iran and the significance of that. again, essentially saying this is not a done deal, but it's something that -- it's a first step that he believes needs to be taken. important to point out he was speaking to a largely israeli audience, an audience that is skeptical of this deal that feels as though it doesn't go far enough. here's a little bit more of what president obama had to say. take a listen. >> if at the end of six months it turns out we can't make a deal, we're no worse off, and in fact we have greater leverage with the international community to continue to apply sanctions and

. and the president very interestingly at one point, brooke, talked about the term obama care. people in washington have been saying the president hasn't been using the word obama care as much lately. what's the deal with that? the president used it during this address to younger folk s here at the white house. here's what the president had to say. >> i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and i do. i care about you. i care about families. i care about americans. but no matter how much i care, the truth is that for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. it's going to be you. they are going to trust you. >> so a little bit of the president picking himself up, dusting himself off from that disast rr rollout of healthcare.gov. no briefing here at the white house today, but on a conference call with reporters, officials with the administration, they were talking about how they also believe that enrollment is picking up, brooke. that is really the best news that this white house can be hoping for right now, for a

obama doesn't have to face the voters anymore. so a lot of this talk about where he stands in the polls is only relevant if it actually leads to defections among democrats. the republicans already oppose him. if his low poll numbers cause democrats to head for the hills, that's when we should start saying it's really significant. so far, that hasn't happened. so the consequences of his low poll numbers are not yet serious. that doesn't mean they might not get serious in the new year if they can't get their act together on the website. if they do get their act together and these patches work, we don't know the antibiotics answer to that question yet, despite the cheerleading from the white house. if it does get better at the beginning part of the new year, he has every opportunity to have a much more successful 2014. and i think what we're starting to see now on this question of the minimum wage, which affects a lot more than kids, the assumption was it used to just be for teenagers. now it's affecting like 40% of minimum wage workers who are over 25 years old. this means that there are

in the obama presidency hearing him say that. also in the context of what we're talking about in terms of what makes him a great leader. your comments on the president? >> of course, i didn't like hearing it. i guess some of his enemies liked hearing it. kind of a profound recognition of limitations from a man who spoke of wanting to lead a transformational presidency. last night in spelling it out, i said can't we compromise and get some things done. he said, great changes only come when one party calls the shots, whether it was roosevelt in the early '30s or lbj after canada's assassinati assassination, early part of ronald reagan. that's sad to me because i don't think we'll get one party for a long time. i see us split down the middle for a long time. he's basically saying we can't do anything big until that's the case. that bothered me. there was a personal moment. howard fineman noticed it more than i did when he seemed to be talking in a rare way from a man who is somewhat distant about the personal problem he's had of being president. he's had to be scrutinized. he does not like being

the obama administration has bide season going to basically be dealing with this region a lot more than we've seen. i think he's going to be the guy to try to talk sense to these different leaders, to try to get the south koreans to deal bet we are the japanese and to try to get both of them to interact in a more constructive way with china. there's a lot of resentment that's built up over thousands of years here culturally, but what joe biden is trying to bring a message is their prosperity regionally is on the line if they don't find a way to fundamentally begin working together. and he really -- if you see this guy and you commented on it before, he's such a natural politician and he goes right to the human core of these leaders. in asia, that's not an easy trick. so joe biden is pushing the human relationships and i suspect he'll be the guy to manage shinn ping for some time. >> something you don't see normally, political skills. pete clemons traveling with vice president biden. thank you, sir. the white house insists the white house is not trying to contain china, just simply playing
